How to use your reports to reconcile
  • Settlement reports should match the amounts received into your bank account
  • Because settlement occurs at 6pm AEST this will not always match a end of day POS report
  • LOKE's Transaction reports display information from 4am / 4am AEST
  • LOKE's Transaction reports include information on how much credit or discount was applied which is useful if your POS does not report on this automatically.

Please find attached a users guide  for your gateway - if you have any questions you can contact 
Further information - What is a payment gateway
A payment gateway is used to the process the transaction when a customer is paying with their LOKE app and then deposits funds into your nominated bank account.

This is very similar to the account and gateway that sits behind your EFTPOS terminal that is responsible for the same thing; processing and deposits.
Why do I need a payment gateway
Each LOKE store will need their own gateway, as each store is a separate business. If you own more than one store these can share the same gateway. Without a gateway, your customers will not be able to use your app and you will not be able to receive deposits.
Who is LOKE?
LOKE is Melbourne based technology company and the developer of your loyalty app. LOKE work in partnership with Fat Zebra to enable your customer to use their app for in-store mobile payments.
Who is Fat Zebra?
